 Ethereal is a free packet capture program.  That is what I use when I
am trying to figure out what is going on with web traffic.  As a tip,
once I have a capture to analyze, I will find a packet of interest,
right click on the packet and select "Follow stream" and see all of the
TCP conversation for that session.

Subject: [Web4lib] Ebscohost with Public Web Browser

We've just started having a problem accessing our Ebscohost databases
with Public Web Browser. We use a white list to prevent people from
using the general Internet on such computers, and until very recently it
has worked fine. 
Today, however, PWB is not allowing access to Ebsco databases because it
says they are not a permitted site. Something at Ebscohost is apparently
trying to load a page that we don't have in our white list. I called the
company and they say that they haven't changed a thing lately, but our
computers use Deep Freeze so we haven't changed a thing either. Is
anyone else who uses PWB seeing this problem accessing Ebscohost?

If I could find a way to get a list of every page that is trying to load
when we go to that site I could probably figure it out for myself. Does
anyone know of a utility that will do this?
